holy shit, Louis just posted on Twitter that he's got cancer

zero google results found, were you just trolling or did someone troll you?

 

 

i was just takin' the ol' piss

 

by saying one of watmms most beloved figures has cancer? lol

 

 

hey, i gotta get my sadistic thrills wherever i can

 

 

 

also, i'm just now hearing about these allegations. I have a feeling that he has done a few inappropriate things (haven't we all to some degree or other), but i would be shocked if he had done anything amounting to actual sexual assault. I have more thoughts on the matter but bah don't feel like talking about bummer stuff like this right now...

I think at least in my mind there is a big difference between taking your dick out as a joke to make others uncomfortable (women or men) VS taking out your dick and finishing a full jerk off session in front of people who didn't invite it. Hopefully if there is any truth whatsoever to the allegations they fall more into the first category (which arguably could be called very inappropriate but still relatively harmless) the latter imo would constitute a form of sex crime (whether it could literally be called assault would have to be determined by the law, im not sure)

 

edit: the popular female comedy duo mentioned in the Gawker article is obviously Garfunkel and Oates (just for anyone who didn't catch that)

If it's true, aren't they idiots for not leaving the room as soon as he started jerking off? Did they really stay to completion? Wouldn't that mean they kind of wanted to see it? Were they tied to chairs?

It's alleged that they tried to leave and he blocked the door.

 

There's a scene in Louis where he does almost exactly that to Pamela. She doesn't want to fuck and he awkwardly won't let her leave the flat, blocks the door. Since the show reflects his real life pretty much, it's likely he's done something like that before. The rumours could have stemmed from that scene though.

It's brave putting something like that in his show but it's common for sex pests to hide in blind sight as well.

So two women can't overpower a single (one-handed, if he was jacking off), out of shape man and exit the room? And then they didn't go to the police immediately afterwards? Not buying it. This isn't the womanizing 70s & 80s anymore where the culture in general prevented women from speaking up about abuse. We've actually got such a culture that favors abuse victims now that there's a disconcerting number of falsely reported cases by crazy broads punishing exes or wanting publicity.

 

Not buying it one bit.


In fact we're all part of the problem by discussing it when there's no actual sources to back any of the rumors up.

Well they said the facts weren't right anyway. So maybe it happened, but they weren't all that bothered by it or even had a good time, but don't particularly want to talk about it..

I googled it yesterday, read an article, and it said that was their response

2) his responses to that guy's emails seem totally normal for someone who would be falsely accused

hmm cant say i agree with this at all

 

if somebody sent any one of us a random email saying 'hey can you stop sexually assaulting my female friends' unless any of had assaulted that persons friends we probably would have responded with 'what the fucking fuck are you talking about, who are you?'

but he didnt do that

 

again i dont want to believe this just as much as any of you, but im just pointing out the wierdness of the way he responded to that email, it actually gives some validity to the claims (unfortunately). On the other hand clearly Louie didnt want any sort of paper trail for the discussion, whatever it would entail (hes smart enough to know that) so maybe he just told the guy to fuck off once he was on the phone, its hard to gauge just from the email correspondence

Agree on all points @ Hoodie. That's seriously one of the funniest 10 minutes of stand up I've ever seen (watched it about 4 times and still lol out loud at it). Dude's a maestro and has enormous balls to do those bits on an extremely popular network television show.

Guest bitroast

saw the sexual harassment news followed by the SNL monologue bomb news and started freaking out a little a bit. i've always had friends here and there sort of say louis ck crosses into the too controvosial territory with rape humour, etc. but i have always took the position of defending him on the grounds that he has that detached but insightful, satitrical kind of take on the jokes that never enter too insulting territory but actually do deliver genuine humour. louis ck defender!! essentially. started freaking out a little bit reading those articles like, oh no?? he actually IS a terrible person??? i haven't even seen season 5 of louie yet so i was kind of hoping the allegations and everything would at least come out big and proper AFTER i had finished season 5 so i could at least watch and enjoy it first without having to worry about that stuff.

 

but ahh. watched the SNL monologue after a good solid day of pondering and holy shit the bit got me laughing good. he did lose the crowd a bit with the end bit but seeing as the talk had already gone on for 8 minutes by that point it was pretty obvious it was the >ending< of the bit and there wasn't much other areas he could swing the talk to and crowd control his way back on track?? like, if it was an hour long comedy routine and the crowd started reacting poorly to the jokes, you could swing the matter around and go in a different direction. but the ending of the SNL monolgoue was clearly the big controvosial banger ending of the monologue and he was sort trapped with trying to make the ending worked. which turned into him doing the 'but not us becauase we're all totally cool!!' and thumbs upping at the audience, which in a dumb pathetic way was also making me laugh.

 

what a bunch of sensationalist media hype garbage. the bit may have been controversial and, i guess as evident was probably not the most suitable material for SNL wide spread coverage, but imo the comedy and handling of the matter was still totally spot and im happy to say i will still be able to watch season5 guilt free while the rumours are still nothing more than half baked rumours!!

i'm totally ok with louie being naughty here and there if that's what keeps him going. i mean polanski fucked a teen but that didn't make him less of a brilliant director...

yeah, I watched it this morning and had the same reaction. total ridiculous over the top cringe humour like curb your enthusiasm or something..

 

I haven't read anything about the other stuff though, we'll see how that develops I guess?

not just fucked but drugged and then probably technically raped, but yes I agree about that (Polanski still being a brilliant director). The difference with Polanski though is I already knew about all that shit before i seriously checked out his movies. So going in I did it with the idea of 'this guy raped a teen at jack nicholson's house' and i still really loved what I saw.
